It depends of your authoring knowledge, how familiar are you with authoring DVD or any other programming software ?

There is no "best". But like Pierre said it depends on your knowledge of DVD authoring in general. Try them out - see which one is best for you

Encore
DVDit
DVDLab
Vegas

The best choise for you is DVD Maestro by SPRUCE tech.
By DVDMaestro you can grag/drop stills, create buttons, and simply create navigation link

If you a expert in dvd authroing - Sonic Scenarist.
All you need - Scenarist can do!

Why would Meastro be the best choice? Let's not send the guy in some crazy direction. I don't think he's intrested in spending hundreds/thousands of dollars on some sencond hand authoring system which isn't supported anymore...not to mention the price of the Scenarist :):)

for static images + sounds with automatic commands for menus - maestro is best chice...
cost - hm... :)

your recomends:
- Encore
my test: encore crash after >400 still images, all versions

- DVDit
problem by problem...

- DVDLab
can't work with still images correctly

ps: scenarist BEST, but mooore programming requred.
pps: i am use scenarist for all my projects, but for dummy menus/sound i use dvdmaestro

" maestro is best chice...

What does this mean? The best price on a Meastro system I've seen was around $1500.00...The Scenarist? Around $6000.00

Now since he was asking a such a simple authoring question I would have to assume he wasn't instrested in spending thousands of dollars....right? I'm sure you know what I'm talking about since you obviously have spent several thousand dollars for your gear :)

Or...have you confused this site with http://www.videohelp.com ??

All Fun & Games :):)

I perfectly understand you.
But in Encore it will be extremely to make that the author asks.
In DVDLab - it is impossible.
Probably it is better way to buy once a program, and do in it all.

O! Where is author????
How he author project?
